Julian Love is the latest in a long line of Notre Dameís top talents.A complete corner with all the physical and mental tools to survive on an island at the next level, Love recently spoke exclusively with MCM about why heís the best cornerback in this draft, the best receivers heís ever covered and why Alohi Gilman was the teammate he needed. JM: Many feel that youíre one of the best cornerbacks in this draft. To be honest, I think things are pretty muddy at the top. Iím not sure that anyone has distanced themselves as the clear cut top corner of this class. Do you feel like you have a chance to be that guy?JL: Yeah Dion Lewis Jersey White , I honestly do. Football is an interesting game. Iím a well balanced player and thatís very important at the next level. I can play inside or outside. Iím aggressive. I have good ball skills and play-making ability. Looking at the big picture outside of football, Iím a great person to represent your organization. Iím a trustworthy guy. Iím very dependable both on and off the field. My personality and passion for the game really set me apart.JM: Do you think thereís a scheme at the next level that best suits your style of play?JL: Iím someone who can easily adapt to anything. I feel like I can play in any scheme really. Iím a quick learner. I can adapt to whateverís asked of me. I can become one with any scheme. Iím comfortable playing in any scheme.I love the way Love attacks the run game. No hesitation to get dirty here.JM: Which aspects of your game are you hoping to improve on at the next level?JL: I would definitely say the technical side of the game. You can never be too advanced in this area. Iíd like to become more of a technician at the next level. I think Iím a natural athlete and Iím a play-maker. Any defensive back should always strive to be more technical. Thatís my goal. The technicians play this game for a long time. Theyíre the guys that can play well into their 30ís.JM: Which combine drill or drills do you think best translate to what defensive backs actually implement on the field?JL: Itís tough to say. Part of me wants to say the 40 yard dash. I wanna run a good 40 for sure. But weíve seen cornerbacks that struggled in the 40 over the years turn into really good players. And some of them are amazing athletes as well. Desmond King is a name that comes to mind for me. He ran a 4.60 and heís an exceptional cornerback. Heís an All-Pro player for the Los Angeles Chargers. Iím sure he loves to tell that story. I think the position drills are very important. They can be very telling for us defensive backs in terms of measuring potential success.JM: Who are some of the best receivers youíve ever covered throughout your time at Notre Dame?JL: Thatís tough. Iíve covered so many great receivers. USC were our rivals during my freshmen year (laughs). My job was to shadow Adoree Jackson when he was in the game on offense. That was tough (laughs). I had to guard him. Heís obviously an unbelievable athlete.He went to become a first round pick as a corner for the Titans. When he wasnít in the game, I was covering Juju Smith-Schuster. Heís a very powerful guy. That was quite the task as a freshmen. I learned a lot that year. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside at Stanford is a load to handle. Heís a tough cover for sure. Heís a bigger guy and you canít let him win positioning. He got me a few times though. I really respect him as a player.JM: You had some great teammates throughout your time at Notre Dame, but if you were headed to war tomorrow and could only bring one with you, who would you bring and why?JL: Thereís so many guys that Iím close with but Iím gonna have to go with Alohi Gilman. He played safety for us this past season. Hereís a guy who transferred here after his freshmen year. He had to sit out a year to satisfy the transfer rules. He came in and had a phenomenal season for us. He was a guy that I knew I could rely on throughout every game this year. We didnít even have to say anything to each other. I knew where he was gonna be and he knew where I was gonna be. We had that sort of special relationship. I appreciated playing next to him.JM: In closing Adoree' Jackson Jersey White , when a team uses one of their picks on Julian Love, what kind of guy are they getting?JL: Youíre getting a great all-around guy. Iím unique in that sense. Youíre getting a competitor on the field and a great man off the field. Iím somebody thatís gonna go out there and compete on every single rep. I donít take plays off. Competition is what drives me to be great. You can trust me with anything. Thatís what I bring to the table. The Patriots will get a chance to see one of their former running backs when they face Dion Lewis and the Titans in Week 10 and thereís an optimistic report about their chances of having rookie running back Sony Michel in the lineup for the game.Michel has missed the last two games after hurting his knee against the Bears in Week Seven, but Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that his return to action this week is considered likely. The caveat to that is that Michel will need to get through a week of practice without any setbacks after practicing on a limited basis last week.Michel, who also missed the season opener, leads the Patriots with 422 yards on 95 carries.The Patriots have used James White Tajae Sharpe Jersey , Kenjon Barner and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson out of the backfield in Michelís absence. Patterson has been effective in his new role, so it will be interesting to see how the Patriots deploy him once Michel is back in action.
